Hi.

In Mac OS X 10.4.x, one could set one's AirPort Disk to re-mount itself upon connecting to the wireless network of the AirPort Extreme the disk was connected to. This was accomplished using a setting in the AirPort Disk Utility.

This application has disappeared in Leopard. As far as I know, there is no way to replicate this function currently. Has anyone else missed this or found its equivalent?

Thanks.

It seems as though the util is built right into finder, but I'm having the exact same problem. I'm actually glad that a few other people are though, as I would expect a software update fix sooner or later. Well, I would demand it really. Otherwise Apples Airport Extreme advertising pages could be considered completely false!

I had the same issue, but I saw a suggestion from someone here to just re-install the utility from the Airport Extreme CD. Once I did that everything worked great again.

yeah this suggestion came direct from apple support. I have the same problem, and for some reason I can't locate my original installer disk. I haven't been able to find a version that works on the apple site. so am I S.O.L.?:mad::confused::eek:
